Ricky Martin’s Show was Hot . . . Hot . . . Hot!

Ricky Martin brought all of the passion of his “Musica + Alma + Sexo” show to Caesars Palace’s Colosseum Theater. From the moment the show opened with a video of Ricky bound in chains struggling to free himself to the frantic beat of his finale, Ricky’s show was Hot . . . Hot . . . Hot!

The excitement built into a frenzy of sensual dancing and pulsating music. With such a high energy performance and seemingly non-stop action, each number became more explicit than the last. They named the show “Musica + Alma + Sexo” (Music, Soul and Sex), a perfect description of what to expect. The stage was “on-fire” with Ricky and his dancers in their daring interpretations of each song.

I enjoyed the uncontrollable, frantic emotion of the dancing combined with Ricky’s raw animal magnetism. His performance touched the audience and I think Ricky will gain many new fans. He really took command of the stage.

It seemed like a simple three tiered metallic scaffold bridge setting divided into nine squares but Ricky can make anything exciting. Ricky and his dancers slid down poles and moved about the squares using them as props for their choreography. Even the shirtless guitarists joined in the dancing while playing.

Ricky Martin's Show was Hot . . . Hot . . . Hot! (Continued)

Ricky Martin sang his American hits "Livin' la Vida Loca" and "Shake Your Bon-Bon," along with the classic favorite Que Dia Es Hoy, disco-inspired Mas, and Vuelve, as well as Basta Ya, I'll be true to myself (in Spanish) and other songs from his new album Musica + Alma + Sexo".

As Ricky finally began to gyrate his hips, the audience went wild. His style was not like Tom Jones or Engelbert Humperdinck, but more of a hot blooded Latin version.

It was all there in Ricky's show even a surprising sadistic touch featuring a female dominatrix.

Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Ricky Martin's exposure began when he joined an around the world tour with the teen singing group Menudo in 1984. At 18, Ricky was dropped because of their age limit. Later he became involved in acting and singing in New York. Ricky's album Ricky Martin was released in 1988 by the Sony Latin division continuing with Me Amaras, in 1989. Actor, recording star and concert performer, Ricky's next album A Medio Vivir was produced in 1997. He appeared in the Spanish-language version of Disney's animated feature Hercules. One successful album after another, Ricky kept getting better and better! His album Vuelve, in 1998, featured the hit single La Copa de la Vida (The Cup of Life).

Caesars Palace always schedules the finest entertainers. The Colosseum is designed for perfect viewing no matter where you sit.
